"This is a great application"

June 27, 2003  |  By Paolo Cordone

 |  Version: Kairos 2.0.4


This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have tried it out and paid for my licence within a day. It is a great application and the perfect companion to EarthBrowser, for all wanna-be meteorologists :-)
I have had a few problems with getting Kairos to send me emails, as I am behind a firewall. It seems partially sorted now, but I would like more flexibility in configuring the SMTP server(s).

Being able to archive the data beyond 28 days is also a near must, if one wants to track seasonal changes and do some climatic analysis, so maybe this is for the next version. And by the way, there no need to include relative humidity, as its a misleading piece of info (see http://www.shorstmeyer.com/wxfaqs/humidity/humidity.html)

"Handy weather tracking tool"

May 04, 2003  |  By triceratops47

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Works well and as advertised. Look forward to more display flexibility (e.g., different parameters, such as relative humidity) in future updates, but still 5 stars overall because it's so useful and, as far as I can tell, bug-free.

Documentation could use a little work. When my Mac wakes up from sleep the program appears able to "catch up" on at least some lost data, but the documentation seems to say that all the lost data is merely extrapolated: "When your machine awakes, Kairos will calculate how long it was asleep for and fills the data set with the last known data for the length of the 'sleep' so the graphs maintain the timeline. [FAQ]" Thus, unless I'm not understanding something, the program appears to perform somewhat better than advertised.
